Yes, there are several ways to connect to the tv. HDMI is the (NEWER) way to connect the console. The reason being, is because HDMI carries both video and audio. The standard way to connect is by using the provided (RCA) cords that came with the system. They connect by splitting the video(yellow) and audio(white=left red=right) Almost all tv's out now have either HDMI or the audio/video inputs, and are typically cable ready.(little threaded plug in the back that your cable box hooks into) You can purchase a cable ready adapter from game stop or even use the one from an existing PS2 or PS1. They all use the same adapter from the system. The only difference is, if you don't connect with HDMI then you are NOT going to have high def available. It will be in standard def all the time. The final way to connect is a bit difficult. It requires a bit of knowledge in what your doing. HDMI to a HDMI adapter to DVI-I or DVI-D monitor. Some tv's come equiped with a DVI-D input so it can double as a monitor for a computer. This way WILL give you HIGH DEF and arguably the best picture you will ever get because you can set the frame rate (frpm) your self. Hope this info is useful. Good luck. ^^

There is no signal on my emerson tv, how do i get one


1. You are not on the right input for the signaling device: Verify which input number (or type ie HDMI/component/video/Cable) your device is connecting to and tune to that input.
2. The signaling device is not powered on. Verify it is on and the cable is properly seated into device and TV.
3. The cable is bad. Try a different cable or use alternate type of connection.
4. The specific input port on the TV is bad. Move the connecting cable to a different port (ie from HDMI 1 to HDMI 2) and tune the TV to that input.
If you are using an Over the Air signal (OTA) with rabbit ears or and antenna use the TV menu to run an auto tuning scan of your local stations.
If you are using a tuning box (cable/satellite) over a coaxial connection check connections and tune the TV to CH 3 or CH 4 and check for picture. There may be a switch on the back of the box indicating CH 3 or CH 4.

How to connect asus p1801-t to tv ?


This PC is equipped with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 630 2GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card. This means if your TV has an HDMI input connector you can directly connect the pc to the Tv with an HDMI cable and select the corresponding graphics monitor connection in the Display properties. Alternatively if your tv has only got a VGA input that can also be used from the PC and you can connect the speaker or headphone audio output to the audio input of the TV with a suitable 3.5 headphone to RCA adapter.

Hi,Even though you have done some cabling already,for the sake of correct connection I describe all the possible cabling alternatives to you..You can select whichever you want..

TO WATCH DVD ON THE TV:
** Receiver's "AUDIO and VIDEO OUTPUT as " 2xRCA Audio+1x Video " or "Optic Cable OUTPUT or " HDMI Output " of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary cables on your hand )
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio+ Video input s " as can either be : 3xRCA jacks or "Optic cable input " or HDMI IN connector of your TV ,
** than just switch to DVD mode on Receiver and play DVD
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..

TO LISTEN YOUR TV ON SURROUND SYS.
** AT TV side : you need to connect "Audio Output " as can either be : 2xRCA jacks or "Optic cable output" or HDMI connector of your TV ,
** to Receiver's "TV input "or "AUX input" or "Optic Cable input"
or HDMI of your Home Theater Receiver (whichever you want ,based on the existing sockets and necessary
cables on your hand )
** than just switch to respective SOURCE mode on
Receiver corresponding the connector you have used on the back of Receiver ..
*
You can use "HDMI" connections as well but sometimes HDMI creates problem on Audio..


Pls remember.."IN " goes to "OUT" or vice versa..all the times..

There you go..Both Tv and DVD sound are on the
Receiver as SURROUNDING SOUND .By this means ,whatever you watch on the TV will come thru your Receiver's SURROUNDING SOUND speakers as well .

Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

I have bought a HDMI cable and I cant seem to get my Prosonic to work with my pc. It works on other TV's The cable works fine with dvd player. Is there somewhere on the TV I shall activate first? I...


How many HDMI Inputs are available on the TV? Also, are you trying to project your computer to the TV or get TV on your PC?
I will assume the first scenario. The only thing I can suggest is that if there are multiple HDMI inputs then you will need to choose the correct one to change it to. If it does not give you that option on the TV input switcher menu then you can try to plug and unplug (while everything is on and attempting to project) the HDMI cable into different inputs on the TV until you find the right one.
Alternatively you can use a VGA/DVI cable depending what is on the back of the TV and that will definately work, but won't be HD.
Hope this helps.

I want to hook up a blue ray dvd player they told me to m=buy HDMI cable and this only goes to the tv, but doesn't have to go hooked up through the cable box


If you want to connect your blu-ray player to your tv, use the HDMI cable.
If you want to connect your cable box to your tv, I'd use component cables or get another HDMI cable.
You're right, you don't have to use your cable box to use your blu-ray player.

I am having a somewhat similar experience. The HDMI 2 is a little flaky on these TVs, try turning the input device that is attached to HDMI 1 OFF then reboot the TV. For some reason, if there is a signal going to both HDMI inputs at the same time there are major problems. I also found that if I input L/R audio into the HDMI 2 analog jacks, that sound also goes to HDMI 1(if no digital sound signal is going there).

I have researched on your issue and found that the Receiver is not capable of processing audio from HDMI input. It will bypass the signals from its HDMI input to HDMI output..
The Receiver has 3 HDMI input and one output. Hence you can use this as a HDMI switch to connect three HDMI devices to single HDMI port on the TV.
In order to get the sound from speakers connected to the Receiver, it is required to make alternate digital or analog audio connection.
You can confirm the information from the manual of the Home Theater System. Please refer page # 36 of the Manual to get the information. I have provided a link where you can download the Manual for the HT System:

Screen goes yellow, fades, then NO SIGNAL


try using an alternate input source like a dvd or game console and see if you can duplicate the problem. then call vizio support and describe your problem. a lot of vizio parts have lifetime warranties on certain parts and a free service call to change out parts.

could have an issue with main board that has hdmi input. if you have 2 hdmi inputs on the TV, try the alternate input, too. vizio has had some issues with main boards. have worked on them for 3 years. hope this helps.
